During the 1980s and 1990s a great deal of work was undertaken by constabularies wanting to increase the number of Black and minority ethnic (BME) officers in their ranks. Academic research about this and a number of related subjects was published, informing Home Office policy communicated to chief officers. Many BME officers joined Black and other minority ethnic police associations, further developing policies and practices. We know a good deal about BME officers but the indications are that the police have learned little from the considerable knowledge available. This article explores lessons learned from the research about BME officers and considers their neglect within constabularies.
